One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."
We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older.
The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young.

can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

Important ideas can come from unexpected places.
We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.
